Master Printmakers Exhibit at Columbus Museum

Master printmakers

The years following World War I through the Great Depression saw a flowering of printmaking in America as artists explored the richness of the medium in unprecedented numbers. Etchings, lithographs, and wood engravings by 17 leading printmakers of the time will be on view in the Woodruff Works on Paper Gallery at the Columbus Museum through July 3. Their work, largely figurative in style, examined and often celebrated the many dimensions of American life. The exhibition will present depictions of urban life, small town and rural life, landscapes, architecture, and portraits. Prints by Thomas Hart Benton, Martin Lewis, Lamar Baker, Louis Lozowick, Kalman Kubinyi, Isabel Bishop John Taylor Arms, Helen Greene Blumenschein, and John Sloan are among those that will be on view.
